Chinese police on patrol in Italy to boost tourism

Officers in Rome help Chinese tourists with anything they need, including giving directions to city's many attractions.

    Each year about three million Chinese citizens visit Italy and now they will have a few more familiar faces to help them on their travels.

    In a European first, Chinese police are patrolling major Italian cities - and the officers have become an attraction themselves.

    Al Jazeera’s Claudio Lavanga reports from Rome.
